Carrer de la Mare de Deu de Port, 56, 08038 Barcelona, Spain
Wasn’t on my list but was recommended by someone last minute. Wasn’t expecting much but when I actually got there it was stunning. It’s huge and could take a few hours to stroll around. I fell inlove with this place straight away, it was so...More
This unique cemetery can be appreciated both by touring it or by just driving along the main road towards the airport and take a couple of glimpses at it.
most of the tombs are dug into the mountain and the entire place oozes an atmosphere...More
A beautiful cemetery. Lots of history.
We enjoyed strolling through all of the areas available.
This is a very large place, so having a car to drive to the different areas was a good idea.

Make time to spend an hour or two here while you're in Barcelona. It's a bit out of the way but not too bad if you take the bus. The monuments and massive mausoleums make it feel more like a miniature city then a cemetery....More
Best seen from the seaward side, actually from the Ronda Litoral, mix of funerary monuments and mausoleums and holes in the wall for ossuaries. It's huge. It's solemn. It's actually quite fun to see the Spanish customs of death.
A beautiful cementery built on a hill with truly monumental tombs. It is in a somewhat isolated area, although there is a direct bus from Sants train station to an avenue closeby (number 109). Be sure not to miss the Batllo and Amatller Pantheons.
Such a massive and overwhelming location. We had seen it driving in and returned to see it up close. You don't realize how huge it is until you are standing amongst all the crypts. 150,000 plots and such beautiful sculptures everywhere you look. If you...More
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to
this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
